Panthers come up with a fresh way to tweet in the summertime

It’s summertime in the NFL, meaning there’s time to sit back and unwind, and the Panthers’ social media team found something to do with all the free time on its hands.

On Twitter this morning, @Panthers wrote, “Now go back and read the first word of our tweets from the last three days.”

And what do you find if you do that? It turns out that the Panthers have elaborately been tweeting out the theme to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, which means if you read the first word of every Panthers tweet from the last three days in reverse chronological order, you come up with, “Now this is a story all about how my life got flipped turned upside down and I’d like to take a minute just sit right there I’ll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel-Air.”

Why would the Panthers do that? Training camps don’t open for three more weeks, and there’s nothing better to do in the NFL right now.

    Did that to a marriage counselor I liked when I moved from Florida to Georgia. Sent her a long letter, told her to go back and look at the first letter of each paragraph, which spelled out happy birthday. She was thrilled to find out I was actually listening when she talked and had made a note of her birth date.

    Now if only I’d listened to my wife.

    I mean ex-wife.

    Would have made a lot more sense to make it the lyrics to Summertime. Or even Parents Just Don’t Understand.

    Don’t get the association to the tv show theme. What am I missing?

    Now the Panthers will be sure to lose money on their next picture. Will Smith effect.

    “Social Media” departments have to try and justify themselves somehow…. Bunch of 20 somethings playing on their phones.

    Pointless and silly are some thoughts that come to mind.

    If the Panthers have interest in cute tweets, they’re in for another long season.

    Translation: please don’t fire us because we don’t have a real job or the ability to find one.

    A sense of humor, maybe?

    Wouldn’t Robert Griffin be the Robert Griffin of the NFL? Usually, when people use the ____ of the _____ format, it then refers to another person in a different field (or league for athletes). I feel like you come up short on your figures of speech usage.
